In recent years, Florian Hecker (b. 1975) has created a unique œuvre that has received international recognition in the form of numerous exhibitions, performances and concerts. In his work, Hecker consistently forms connections between the realms of visual art, music and performance, breaking established boundaries and opening up new forms of expression and possibilities of perception in space and time.
Willem de Rooij (b. 1969), a professor at the Frankfurt Städelschule art academy since 2006, is one of the most influential artists of his generation. Often bearing reference to works by other artists or artefacts from historical and anthropological collections, his works revolve around questions of representation and meaning.
In honour of the museum’s twenty-fifth anniversary, a new presentation of the collection awaits the visitors with a focus on the acquisitions of the past few years.
